Omega-6 and Omega-3 are fatty acids that are essential to our health yet we cannot synthesize them. Therefore, we need to get them from an external source. Too much of either one is not good, and Bug Strong offers an ideal 3:6 ratio that’s hard to find in other foods.
Riboflavin is a B vitamin (B2). It’s necessary for many processes in your body including normal cell growth and function. It converts food (carbohydrates) into fuel (glucose) used to produce energy
Biotin is also a B vitamin (B7) and it helps your body use enzymes and transport nutrients which helps regulate blood sugar levels. It’s an important component of enzymes that break down substances like fats, carbohydrates, and others.

INCLUDES A FULL EIGHTEEN AMINO ACIDS
THE BUILDING BLOCKS OF LIFE
Amino acids are described as the building blocks of life because they bond together to create chains called proteins. They make up around three-quarters of your dry body weight and influence many functions of your brain and body.
Certain amino acids are hard to obtain in plant-based diets. These include lysine, methionine, isoleucine, threonine, and tryptophan. Of these, lysine is the most commonly absent.
Bug Strong delivers eighteen different amino acids including lysine, methionine, isoleucine, threonine, and tryptophan.
Calcium helps to build and maintain strong bones. Your heart, muscles, and nerves also need calcium to continue to function properly.
Iron is needed to make hemoglobin which carries oxygen from the lungs to all parts of the body, myoglobin, a protein that provides oxygen to your muscles. Plus, iron is needed to make some hormones.
Chronically low levels of Magnesium can increase the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, type 2 diabetes and osteoporosis. Magnesium is known to fight depression and has anti-inflammatory benefits.
Zinc supports your immune system and general metabolism by enabling your body to make proteins and DNA, Zinc is essential for wound healing and your sense of taste and smell. Zinc also offers valuable antioxidants.
Copper helps your body maintain healthy bones, blood vessels, nerves, and immune function. It is essential to iron absorption. Copper also has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
Manganese helps your body metabolize amino acids, cholesterol, glucose, and carbohydrates and plays a role in bone formation, blood clotting, and reducing inflammation.

GOOD FOR YOU
& GOOD FOR THE PLANET
Reading this far, you know why BUG STRONG is good for you
BUG STRONG is also Good for the Planet
As our population grows, the demand for meat increases. Available land and water for beef production are becoming scarce. Pollution, deforestation, and the humane treatment of animals are major concerns that need to be addressed.
Insect Agriculture is one solution.
Insect agriculture uses way less land and water than current animal agriculture while emitting a fraction of the greenhouse gasses. Insects can be raised humanely in small spaces. They can be raised in urban or rural environments by families, small farms, and big industries.
For the sake of our health and that of our planet, it simply makes sense to add insects to our diets.
Food insecurity is a major cause of strife and war. Edible insects, already consumed by billions of people worldwide, is one answer.
Crickets are a free to inexpensive protein source that can be grown in homes, small farms, and large commercial enterprises. They are a low-tech business that needs minimal investment capital.
Edible crickets are available to just about everyone everywhere. Crickets as food makes sense.
INHUMANE TREATMENT OF LIVESTOCK
Crickets raised for food can be grown and harvested humanely without growth hormones or antibiotics. They like to be in close quarters and kept in the dark. Crickets can be grown in rural or urban environments. They can be grown by just about anyone anywhere in the world.
In contrast, other kinds of livestock need more land, water, and feed to grow. In an effort to maximize profits, most livestock is denied minimal requirements for a healthy life. Considering the problems with our current meat production methods, insect agriculture makes sense.
Two-thirds of the deforestation taking place in the Amazon is for beef production. Crickets, an alternative protein, can be grown humanely just about anywhere, in both rural and urban areas. Crickets can even be raised in old abandoned warehouses.
While beef demand is destroying countless acres of rainforest, we could be raising insects without any additional deforestation needed. In fact, there are millions of acres of prime cricket habitat available today without needing to cut a single tree.
LAND & WATER RESOURCES
Two-thirds of our potable water and over a third of arable land is used for livestock. As our population increases by 50% in the near future, finding solutions to this is imperative. Crickets, pound for pound, use a fraction of the land and water needed for traditional livestock.
In addition, crickets can be grown in urban environments using space that is currently underutilized.
Also important to note is that insects can be fed food waste to produce larvae that become feed for livestock.
Fertilizers, manure, and pesticides are major causes of land, water, and air pollution. Livestock is responsible for around 14 percent of greenhouse gas emissions.
Crickets, on the other hand, emit a minute amount of pollution in comparison and their frass (poop) makes a great fertilizer. It also takes less food to produce a pound of cricket. Beef is about 3:1 while crickets are 50% better at 2:1.
Crickets are real animal protein that includes all nine essential amino acids; they’re a prebiotic fiber (nutrition for probiotics), very high in antioxidants, a perfect Omega 3:6 balance, high in B12, Calcium, Zinc, Iron, and much more. Crickets are also a very bio-available food source.
Since crickets are an ancient food source and people all around the world still consider crickets food, it makes sense for us to add crickets to our diet.
